College, Career and Beyond

Whether your student would like to get help for work credit, career exploration or navigating the process of college admissions, we are here to help.

The Future Center provides two distinct functions through two distinct roles:
  • The School-to-Work “role” focused primarily on priming kids for their futures while they are still in high school.
  • The College + Career Advisor “role” is focused on helping kids develop solid plans for when they get out of high school.

What is Apprenticeship?

Apprenticeship is an industry-driven, high-quality career pathway where employers can develop and prepare their future workforce, and individuals can obtain paid work experience, classroom instruction, and a portable, nationally-recognized credential.

Why Become an Apprentice?

Through an apprenticeship program, you can obtain paid, relevant workplace experience while acquiring the skills and credentials that employer’s value. 94% of apprentices who complete an apprenticeship retain employment, with an average annual salary of $70,000. Learn more about the benefits of apprenticeship for career seekers and prospective apprentices.


Scoir

GET READY. GET SET. GET SCOIR!

We have a new platform for all things future-focused called SCOIR (pronounced like “score”). It is a user-friendly application to help 9-12th grade students explore post-high school options. All future-ready communication (college, trade school, employment, military and service opportunities) will come through SCOIR so it’s important that all CSH students sign-on. SCOIR will play a key role in helping ensure every student graduates with a plan.

SCOIR goes beyond typical exploration websites to find opportunities that fit students’ needs and interests. It does that via a proprietary aptitude test (via YouScience) that helps students identify their strengths and interests.

If you haven’t done so already, create your SCOIR account by clicking HERE.


Foreign Exchange/Gap Year

Students interested in a foreign exchange program during high school have many options to consider. Each year our local Rotary Club sends and hosts high school students in their programs. Applications are available in late September for travel in August of the following school year.

Other programs include:



Military

For students wishing to go straight from high school into the military, a call to one of our local recruiters is the best place to start. Meetings can be set up in the recruiting office or in the Future Center.


ASVAB Test: The ASVAB helps the DoD not just determine whether you are a good fit to join the service, but also which service branch you might be best for and even what military jobs you can hold after you finish basic training or boot camp. The better your ASVAB score, the broader your options.


Academies

The Academies offer students a very prestigious education, one that is filled with rigor and regimentation. To admission process is arduous, but worth it, if this is the route for you.
